As reported by the Post this past weekend and NY magazine today, Target is going to sell 5,000 BTU air-conditioners in Herald Square Thursday for $75 a pop, including a pull cart to bring them home. The sale begins at noon and will end at 7PM or when they are out of units, which Gothamist predicts be by mid-afternoon. So mark your calendars and arrange to have a long doctor's appointment in the morning on Thursday ("My physician suddenly decided I needed a FULL work-up!").

NY magazine also notes that there will be another sale this Saturday, at the Second Avenue Festival (23rd St. and 2nd Avenue), starting at 11AM. And here's how to properly install an air-conditioning unit.
